A 5 or 6 bedroom period attached property with 3 or 4 reception rooms situated on the outskirts of the semi rural town of Paddock Wood in Kent.
This most attractive listed period property has a wonderful semi-rural setting in Lucks Lane on the outskirts of the popular town of Paddock Wood with its local amenities, schools and shops including a Waitrose supermarket and mainline train station. There are excellent schooling options in the area, within both the state and independent sectors, including those in the sought-after Kent Grammar system.
Swatlands was the original farmhouse for the Swatlands Estate and was built in the 17th century with later Victorian additions. Accordingly, it is brimming with period features including the early Victorian canopy offering shade and shelter at the front of the property. Swatlands has a wonderful flow to it and is a versatile and flexible property, which will appeal to families and is perfectly situated for commuters with direct services to London Charing Cross, and London Bridge.
Arranged over 3 floors, there are 3-4 reception rooms and 5-6 bedrooms. Located at the front of the property is a stunning, yet comfortable and cosy sitting room with exposed ceiling beams and an impressive inglenook bressumer beamed fireplace with woodburner. The formal dining room is a dual aspect room which has a door leading out to the side of the house.
The kitchen/breakfast room has a tiled floor and offers plenty of space for informal dining. Adjacent to the kitchen, with its stylish cabinetry, is a separate utility room for laundry facilities. The kitchen is a very light space, by virtue of the spacious conservatory, which leads off from the kitchen and in turn looks onto the stunning rear garden. There is also a further reception room, which is currently used as a second sitting area although it could be used as a study or 6th bedroom. There is also the potential to utilise this space as an annex as it has an attached bathroom and separate door for private access.
There are 3 bedrooms on the first floor and a newly fitted family bathroom, and the spacious master bedroom has a walk-in dressing room. 2 further double bedrooms can be found on the second floor accessed from a spacious landing.
This lovely property has exposed beams in many of the rooms and other period features include original sash windows in parts and a listed feature archway on the first landing. A hatch leads to a boarded loft, which has power and is accessed from an integral loft ladder.
